    After a long 30 days, our first hatchling is here! It needed a little help getting started, but once I started, he came out on is own and FAST! #2 is still about half way there and I am thinking he will be out by tonight. A huge thanks so iamcurisotycat for all of your advice though this! I couldn't have done it without you! Whew! 1 down, 1 to go!

    **edit*** #2 is out and doing great! We defied all odds with a 66% hatch rate on shipped eggs in a cheapo chickubator!
